The AVMA produces a multitude of videos for veterinarians and the public as well as the Animal Tracks series of podcasts for pet owners.

Recent videos have focused on subjects such as the need for veterinarians in rural America, the AVMA Strategic Plan, elderly pets, and anesthesia in pets. For the past two years, the AVMA has produced a popular series of videos on preventing dog bites, featuring an actor playing Jimmy the dog, for National Dog Bite Prevention Week the third full week in May. The Association posts videos on the AVMAvets channel on YouTube.

The Animal Tracks podcasts recently have covered subjects such as canine influenza, vaccines in pets, and pet dental health. A January podcast featured research published in the JAVMA finding that dogs with out-of-date rabies vaccination status were not inferior in their antibody response following booster rabies vaccination, compared with dogs with current vaccination status (J Am Vet Med Assoc 2015;246:205-211). Podcasts are available in the AVMA Media Library.
